Zelikow School of Jewish Nonprofit Management at the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion
Los Angeles or remote, with regular travel and summer residency in Los Angeles
The Zelikow School of Jewish Nonprofit Management (Zschool) at the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR), is a transformative gathering place for nonprofit leaders to learn, collaborate, and prepare to lead the business of Jewish life. The Zschool uses hands-on, project-based approaches, ensuring students acquire the skills needed to do the job effectively, and to spark innovative solutions to today’s Jewish nonprofit challenges. With its variety of educational options, the Zschool is uniquely positioned as the training ground and learning lab for Jewish community leaders around the world. The Zschool offers multiple degree tracks: Master of Arts in Jewish Nonprofit Management (MAJNM), and Master of Science in Organizational Leadership and Innovation (MSOLI) and a certificate. MAJNM students may pursue a dual degree with any other university, including HUC-JIR and/or the University of Southern California (USC). The 7-week summer program usually held on the Los Angeles campus (adjacent to USC) has been remote over the pandemic with plans to return in person in 2023.
HUC-JIR seeks a Director to build on its recent growth and success and to broaden the vision and scope of the Zschool. The Director, who reports to the HUC-JIR Provost and supervises two Associate Directors, will lead a Zschool faculty comprised of field-leading scholars and practitioners, collaborate with colleagues across the College-Institute, shape the field by contributing as a thought leader and advancing the faculty’s scholarship, and oversee operations, faculty and student recruitment, curriculum development and field engagement.
HUC-JIR is an equal opportunity employer.
